For those who love anything to do with being outdoors (and not just something to do with boating) here are a few great camping sites we’ve found out by the water. Camping in Florida may not sound ideal due to hot temperatures and let’s not forget the bugs, but here are a few places that just might be the best spots to camp!
Bahia Honda State Park (pictured above) is located at mile marker 37, and is one of the most scenic parks in Florida. With a palm tree back drop and white sandy beaches not to mention its tropical waters, these features help make this campground one of the most popular in the state. There are three campgrounds with a total of 80 campsites that cater to both tents and RV’s. They also have 3 duplex cabins you are able to rent if you’re not up to “roughing-it.” If you are looking to find the perfect spot, this will seem like something from a movie.
Sebastian Inlet State Park is located right off A1A. Even if you’re not a surfer you can camp at the most famous surfing spot in Florida. It’s fun to watch them riding some of the best waves in the state! The camping area isn’t right on the beach, but its close enough. The Park sits on both sides of Sebastian Inlet. The jetty is popular with fishermen and surfers which is on the north side of the inlet; the camping area is on the south side. With three miles of beautiful beaches, a boat ramp, and the Indian River Lagoon for canoeing, kayaking, and fishing, you won’t run out of things to do.
St. George Island State Park, just offshore from Apalachicola, is where you’ll find it. The campsites, located between the Bay and Gulf, are about a half-mile from the beach. They offer electric, water and a central dump station. If your feeling like going back to the old ways of camping this site offers primitive camping and a group camp area. The primitive camp is located at the end of a two-and-a-half mile trail, and is also accessible by canoe or kayak. There are no facilities or water at the primitive camp, while the group camp is designed for organized groups and offers a restroom and cold showers. Fishing and shelling are exceptional at the park.
